Invisalign-Go is the new frontier for optimizing treatment plan in aesthetic dentistry. Teeth movements in Invisalign-Go are intended to be controlled and completely safe for any dentist to be approached. Modern Intra Oral Scanners are easy to use and offer immediate images that are readily used by the dentist for complete understanding of the treated.

more >>>
The support given by the doctor site is going to monitor the treatment plan and results offering the possibility of better treatments in a dental daily practice.
The system uses the pictures of the patient combined with the digital model of the patient giving the opportunity of evaluating treatment plans and eventually teeth movements in relationship to the smile of the patient.

The study group will focus on the different focuses of Invisalign-Go and how to manage different cases and conditions in which it is possible to combine controlled movement of teeth to conventional dental treatment.
The possibilities are many and most important are in continuous evolution.
